About the ACT Government Next Generation Energy Storage Grants Program
The ACT is a world leader in renewable energy. Through its Next Generation Energy Storage Grants Program, the ACT Government is supporting the roll out of energy storage to around 5,000 Canberra homes and businesses by 2020. This is the largest roll out of household batteries in the world (outside of Germany).
A key objective of the Program is to generate valuable real-world data on energy storage system costs and performance. This data will be analysed to identify opportunities to improve consumer outcomes and uptake rates for energy storage businesses.
Households and businesses participating in the Program will not only benefit from the support of the ACT Government, but will be participating in critically important research that will speed up the transition to renewable energy, both locally and globally.
